Cold Spring Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

My children and our family loved this neighborhood school. Warm parent community. Excellent educational opportunities (art, P.E., tech, music). The school went through a turbulent period under the leadership of a former superintendent/principal and changes to the curriculum and the way they were implemented. Per other reviews, "top" families did leave the district during this time, but they weren't "top" because of income. They were "top" because they gave a lot of time and energy to the school as volunteers. You never want to lose families like that. Overall, this is a great school with caring, dedicated teachers, involved parents and kind children. One flaw is that the school is not very diverse racially or economically which is reflective of the way many S.B. elementary schools district lines are drawn and the income gap in our society. Our kids and (we as parents) met lifelong friends here, wonderful people who care about the moral and academic development of their children. I can't say what the school will be like under the new leadership, but there are still great teachers and parents there, so I hope they will work together to make it what it once was.

Cold Spring is a wonderful school! There are a few strongly opinionated voices that are looking for people to blame for their own unhappiness. The FACTS are that this school has caring, competent educators and wonderful parents. The school focuses on the whole child, and not just how fast they can recite math facts. One of the previous comments says the school has lost "top families", I would ask how you define "top". I would also determine that by lost, you mean they went to private schools. The fact that you believe in a social hierarchy amongst the parents based on how much money they have shows that you are naïve and at the wrong school.

This school used to be amazing. When Principal McCabe was here it was the top ranked school in the County. Under Price and board leadership, this school has dropped fast. There are still some good teachers, but the current climate at the school is anti-parent and anti-anyone who raises questions about spending that should be easy to answer like "We get $3million to educate 170 kids ($17K per kid - nearly $10K more than other public schools), how is it possible or acceptable that we are running a deficit when under McCabe the school put away $250K a year in savings?"If you care about this school, you should start asking that question, too.

This school is on a massive downward spiral. It's sad to see an outgoing superintendent just let it crumble. We'll fix it but I'll never forget how she allowed this place to suffer after her departure.

Under the (mis)leadership of Dr. Tricia Price, Cold Spring School has taken a nose-dive academically. Our math scores dropped after the school dismantled math leveling/differentiated instruction two years ago – a teaching practice that parents liked that had been so effective for so many years. Top families have left the school because their concerns were ignored. A group of teachers rally to quiet any parent who raises questions about their child’s education. “How dare they question us, we are the experts! Who do they think they are?” is commonly heard in conversations among some teaching staff. I’ll tell you who we are – we are parents and its our job to ensure our kids get the best education available to them. Our family has been at this school for more than four years and in that time we have seen a sad decline in the academic rigor we once loved. I’d give the school only one star if it wasn’t for the amazing kids from wonderful families that attend the school. And there is a light at the end of the tunnel, Dr. Price will not be returning in 2017-18 and so hopefully new leadership can return our beloved school to its former glory.
